Sharkboy and Lavagirl will entertain the youngest viewers but likely erode the good will Robert Rodriguez has built up in the family film genre.

The movie is unbelievably ugly. The garish colors Rodriguez loves so much wash out in 3-D.

An innocent and delightful children's tale that is spoiled by a disastrous decision to film most of it in lousy 3-D.

Dreams are necessary, but without focus and meaning they are cotton candy -- a sweet delight until it melts away, leaving a sugar buzz and a sticky film on your teeth.

My 3-year-old kept his glasses on through most of the film, he remembered characters' names and he didn't potty in his pants. That alone is worth the price of admission.

No amount of bells & whistles can salvage a screenplay this half-baked.

It's terrible 3-D. I think the story is terrible as well.

A movie for kids, by kids, even if Rodriguez was there for a little bit of technical supervision.

Shark Boy is a brave undertaking, but for anyone over 9 years of age, it's also a complete chore to sit through.

Robert Rodriquez continues in the vein of his "Spy Kids" films with another visually frenetic kiddie crowd-pleaser that will leave adult chaperons exiting the cinema nursing headaches.

Nothing's scary, and everything's so light it's on the verge of evaporating.

Rodriguez is a long way off from the energy of the original Spy Kids, and the difference lies between the definitions of "childlike" and "childish."
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The words Robert Rodriguez would come to regret saying for years to his son: "This would make a cool movie".
